In our Lab, we recognize that the long-term success of global conservation efforts may ultimately depend on our ability to produce and inspire future leaders in the field of parks, recreation, and environmental conservation. In other words, we need to be effective communicators. And we need to be great teachers. Teaching and outreach are therefore a critical component of everything that we do. The “Teaching” pages on this website provide an overview of the courses, teaching-related research, and outreach activities associated with the Larson Lab.
